Through the use of next generation TANALITH E wood preservative together with the quality timbers we use and their careful preparation for treatment, we offer a choice of 10 or 15 Year TREAT-RIGHT Performance Warranties on our TANALISED pressure treated timbers.

10 Year TREAT-RIGHT Warranty
For our fencing timbers, we can offer a 10 Year Treat-Right Warranty on our range of ground contact Spruce peeled stakes and sawn timbers.

15 Year TREAT-RIGHT Warranty
We also offer a 15 Year Treat-Right Warranty on our range of Pine, Douglas Fir, Larch and Radiata Pine machined round and sawn timbers.

Warranty Details
Covered is the cost of re-supply by Batsford Timber, or the re-supply by Batsford Timber (at our option), of a component that is proven to have failed as a result of fungal decay or insect attack. It does not cover the costs of removal or reinstatement of such components or consequential costs or loss due to failure of the component.

The term 'fungal decay' as used in the warranty refers to wood destroying fungi that feed on and degenerate the wood cell walls. It excludes staining and mould fungi associated with the weathering of wood.
The term 'insect attack' refers to attack by wood digesting insects that destroy the timber structure.
The term 'failed' refers to damage caused by insects and/or fungi to such an extent that the component is no longer fit for purpose.

This does not affect the statutory rights of consumers, or exclude or restrict the liability of Batsford Timber for death or personal injury caused by negligence, or for fraudulent misrepresentation.
